A Passel of Pomp & A Circus of Circumstance DVD




Archive Number: PZ0591DVD

Award-winning journalist, best-selling author and host of Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman narrates this visual documentary, which spans more than 65 years of convention coverage and chronicles milestones in American political history.

From the formal speeches of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936, to the battles inside and outside the Chicago 1968 convention and the radical sounds of Rage Against the Machine in the streets of Los Angeles in 2000, the documentary showcases the Pacifica network's progressive reporting at its most daring. It includes highlights of the Republican and Democratic conventions, as well as the Mississippi Freedom Party convention in the '60s, and the Shadow Conventions of 2000.

"The Pacifica Archives are a national treasure -- a vast narrative of the grassroots, social justice struggles that have made this country what it is," Says host Amy GOodman. PRA's collection comprises almost 50,000 tapes dating from the '50s through today, many of them extremely rare.
